Hariprasad Kowtha hails from the Southwestern United States. He has been practicing Eastern spirituality all his life, and began a physical mindfulness practice by age eleven. Hariprasad teaches hatha yoga at community centers and yoga studios in West Philadelphia. He welcomes everyone to his classes, regardless of experience or ability. He bases all his practices on collective liberation, believing that mindfulness is foundational to self-determination.
Mindfulness at the Museum is a series of drop-in guided meditation sessions facilitated by skilled holistic practitioners. Our exhibitions serve as the backdrop, as you learn how to become present in the “here and now.” Research shows mindfulness meditation can increase memory skills, foster compassion, and reduce stress. Each encounter is unique from the last, drawing synthesis between the mind and body, leaving participants equipped with knowledge on how to lead a balanced life.
Programming at ICA has been made possible in part by the Emily and Jerry Spiegel Fund to Support Contemporary Culture and Visual Arts and the Lise Spiegel Wilks and Jeffrey Wilks Family Foundation, and by Hilarie L. & Mitchell Morgan.
